Here's another makeup look from a couple of weeks ago. It was vaguely inspired by Koichi of Mejibray (I don't think that's very obvious though haha), because pink hair. 

Also, here's a recent outfit, because I never remember to post these any more:
Dress: Fernopaa
Cardigan: Civarize

Valentine's Day Makeup

This was my makeup look for Valentine's Day. I didn't actually have any plans; I just wanted to take photos while my hair was still pink haha~

Pink hair

Hello, long time no post! My grey hair had faded to almost blonde, and I wanted to try something new before re-dying it, so last week I decided to try a pink toning conditioner. I really like the results! 

 (Sorry about the hood, I didn't get any decent pictures without it.)

I used Jerome Russell Bblonde Maximum Colour Toner in pink. It's fading pretty quickly, but the colour came out a lot more strongly than other coloured conditioners I've used before, so I'm pretty happy with it.

Men's SPIDER snap

I hadn't actually planned to go to this snap event, but during my final week in Tokyo I noticed the sign outside 109 Men's advertising it while I was in Shibuya. I had some time before going to meet a friend, so I took part. I was really surprised to get a big picture, because I hadn't put much thought into my outfit that day haha. I think it might be because I'd said I was about to leave Japan, so wouldn't be able to come to the next snap event like they asked me to. 


I was also in an earlier issue of Men's SPIDER at some point while I was studying in Japan. I'll post it some time if I can find the picture (I lost a lot when my computer broke).

New hair

Hello! It's been a while since I've posted about something other than my year abroad, so I thought I'd post a few pictures of my current hair! My friend recently helped me to dye it grey/silver, and I cut it a little myself, because I don't have time to go to a salon right now. The dye is a Thai one called Lolane Pixxel Color Cream in the colour 'ash', which you can find pretty cheaply on Ebay. As well as working really well, it actually made my hair feel really nice! I was expecting my hair to be a little damaged after dying, but it actually feels and looks healthier than it has done since I first bleached it, so I really recommend this dye. 

The colour looks pretty different in all of these photos due to different lighting and filters, but I'd say the first one is truest to real life.

I've had a lot of university assignments and exams recently, so I haven't had much time to update, but the Xmas holiday starts next week!

Rilakkuma Cafe!

In August, just before I left Japan and just as he moved to Japan, I met up with Frazer, a friend from my university here in England. We went to the Rilakkuma cafe, which was a theme that was going on in the Tower Records Cafe in Shibuya for a while. I think the Rilakkuma theme has gone now, so I'm glad I managed to go while it was still there~ 

 The cafe didn't really have any special decoration, but there were lots of Rilakkuma toys around.

Purin latte

Curry rice

Purin (I think?)

There wasn't much choice of food and drink, but it was all very cute!

And of course, we took purikura

KERA street snap

A few weeks before leaving Japan, I was street snapped by KERA! It was printed in the December 2014 issue. I'm really happy to have a full page in one of my favourite magazines~

Cardigan: Mint Neko
Cross necklace: tutuHA
Top, belt: GLAVIL by tutuHA
Skirt, shoes: Bodyline
Garters: Noctex

After taking my photo, they had me fill in an enquette with things like where I bought each item (although they seem to have printed a couple of them wrong lol), what I do, what I like etc. For some reason the only non-outfit-related question they've printed is what my favourite manga is (Attack on Titan) and why ("because it's interesting"), so it makes me look a little obsessed with it haha.

The outfit was originally to go to a live (can't remember which bands were playing), but KERA actually caught me on a Sunday morning after I'd slept in a manga cafe because I'd missed the last train haha. I was just passing through Harajuku on my way home to find some comfortable shoes because my feet were in agony by this point. It had actually just stopped pouring with rain when they found me; the sunglasses were to hide the fact that I was all gross and make up-less.
